Millers v Latics Preview

Rotherham United
vs.
Wigan Athletic

New York Stadium

25 November 2017

3.00pm

Rotherham United welcome Wigan Athletic to the New York Stadium this afternoon which will be ninth place v second in League One.

The Millers go into this game without a league win this month with Wigan having lost one and won one of their two league games.

The Latics last away game saw them win three-one at Blackpool with the Millers losing their last home game against Shrewsbury to an injury time goal last weekend.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Warne - I still think Wigan are the favourites to go up. They've got the best squad in the league, playing with confidence, scoring and not conceding and I think they will go from strength to strength. Our job is to try and stop them attacking.


Paul Cook - Rotherham are very good and very strong and, from what I've seen of them, deserve more points than they've got. They`ll provide a formidable opponent come kick off.

Rotherham United Team News:

Jon Taylor will be missing but although Will Vaulks has had to have a painkilling injection he should be in the match day squad. Illness has been going through the camp with Jonson Clarke-Harris, Richie Towell and Joe Newell all suffering but it's hoped they will be able to make the squad. Michael Ihiekwe is back from suspension and is expected to go straight back into the starting eleven.

Player to watch: Kieffer Moore

With it looking like his parent club, Ipswich Town, will be recalling him in January the Millers will want to get as many goals as possible out of Kieffer before he returns to Portman Road.

Wigan Athletic Team News:

Dan Burn is out suspended with it looking likely that Alex Bruce will play in his place. Nick Powell has a slight hamstring injury so probably won't start and former Millers' skipper Craig Morgan is out with a long term injury.

Player to watch: Ryan Colclough

Scored twice in the last game out before dashing off to be at the birth of his son so will still be on cloud nine (though probably a little tired!)
